Parker's Economic Development Plan

Posted by [email protected] on November 14, 2012 at 1:15 PM

Champaign County Career Training Center will provide transitional support, training and job opportunities to help low-income, at-risk youth, re-entry, young adults, and teens develop workforce skills, overcome career entry challenges, and assist with transition into employment and/or secondary education.


CCCTC will provide products, services, and workshops to the community that will support the area's economic growth. This will provide opportunities for our students to gain hands-on experience.


Training- CCCTC training is designed to deal with literacy challenges, offers flexible schedule and a combination of classroom and hands-on training.

Participants will have an opportunity to put their skills to work as they practice real-life application of what they learn.


Support- CCCTC offers wrap-a-round support in areas of mental health & wellness, life/parenting skills development, court-support, and career development to help participants overcome challenges in other areas of their life to ensure success. We will offer daycare services, transitional housing, and transportation support.


Career Placement Services- CCCTC works with partners to help put people to work.


Instead of spending 20 million on a new jail. Renovate the existing jail as you agreed 10 years ago for 5 million (more than you need) and spend

2 million on Parker's Social and Economic Development Plan.
